2020 Recap: Pro-Bono Translations and Community Involvement
Join us for a brief recap of what our year looked like in terms of pro-bono and volunteer work!
This year, Argentum Translations provided pro-bono translations to two amazing organizations in North Carolina: Our VOICE and MANNA FoodBank. Learn more about our fight against sexual violence and hunger in North Carolina and how you can help below.
Our VOICE is a non-profit crisis intervention and prevention agency that serves victims of sexual violence in North Carolina. Their mission is to build a community that is free of sexual violence and serve all individuals affected by sexual assault and abuse, through counseling, advocacy, and education. Learn more about how you can get involved here: www.ourvoicenc.org/get-involved-2.
MANNA FoodBank is a private, not-for-profit service organization that links the food industry whose mission is to involve, educate and unite people in the work of ending hunger in Western North Carolina. Individual donors help ensure that MANNA can be there for the more than 100,000 people facing an empty plate in WNC every year. You can help by donating here: donate.mannafoodbank.org.
Argentum Translations provided these organizations with language services in Spanish, increasing community access to their resources. We managed to do so by partnering with Instituto Superior Lenguas Vivas from Misiones, Argentina. We offered a translation internship as a requirement for translation students to graduate. In this internship, we worked together to strengthen students’ translation, proofreading, research, and terminology skills, as well as enhance their educational background, put their training into practice and help them gain valuable work experience.

One of our values is our deep commitment to improving the lives of our community members, and we are very proud and excited to continue to work towards this goal next year!
